Bought my 78 back it was my first truck but due gas milage I had to sell to get something better on gas. Fast forward two years I can afford two vehicles and the guy I sold it two wanted to get rid of it ( b/c of blown motor truck has 247521 miles on it ) so here I am spending more money on it.

In its prime before I sold it, I installed a leveling kit from JBG new ball joints and bushings in the front end, new top, front bumper I made along with a warn M8000 winch, EB seats out of a late model bronco, 33/10.5 bfg on weld super singles and much more.

Damn that's a good looking truck. What are your plans for it? It's awesome the way it sits now.

I want to be reliable so I can drive it, redo the front bumper with integrated winch and lights, pull the transfer case and re-seal it, build some kind of roll cage, Install a transmission cooler and filter but other than that keep as stock as possible.

Why a roll cage? If you're going to keep it stock. Just wondering, it seems like something you would only do for a more extreme rig.

Nothing extreme just something to make truck safe in an rollover.

Oh alright. I guess I just don't do enough wheeling to worry about that :p maybe eventually down the line for me.
